  • General Livestock Assistant

    (Added April 26, 2017) Brookford Farm is a large, diversified operation nestled along the banks of the Merrimack River in central New Hampshire, a short drive north of Concord. The farm acquired this 650-acre plot and moved from a leased location four years ago. We grow about 40 acres of certified organic vegetables, raise pastured layers, broilers, and hogs, and rotationally graze our dairy and beef animals. The dairy cows' diet is supplemented with organic grain, but we feed no soy, corn, or corn silage. Our milk is all bottled raw or turned into various cultured products right here on the farm, and moved through our 300 member year-round CSA, farmers markets, and local groceries and restaurants.

    The General Livestock Assistant would be expected to milk 6 shifts per week, feed out bales and bed down barns through the winter, monitor herd and calf health, set up and move temporary fencing during the grazing season, and assist with construction projects. There will also be a fair amount of work with the chickens: moving them on pasture, feeding and collecting eggs. Those with tractor experience (preferred) may expect to help with mucking out, turning compost, cropping, and haying. Once settled in, the candidate will be expected to anticipate and execute tasks on their own or with the livestock team.

    Previous animal husbandry experience is required, and dairy experience is preferred, but not absolutely necessary. We are looking for patient individuals who are committed to low-stress livestock handling. The ideal candidate would be observant and organized, possess strong communication skills and a positive attitude, and be proactive and hardworking. Must be capable of lifting 50lb bags multiple times a day and working through inclement weather.

    Compensation based on experience. Please send a resume, two references, and a brief letter of interest. If you are interested in a different type of position on the farm, or have a partner who would also be looking for employment, contact for availability.
